Ihsan Institute was founded in 2005 by Shaykh Mufti Kamaluddin Ahmed as a nonprofit, nonpartisan and nonpolitical educational institute dedicated to classical Islamic learning and Spirituality. The Classical Islamic Learning courses offered by Ihsan Institute are designed to introduce men to the classical methodology of Islamic knowledge and scholarship through a modern educational approach. The philosophy of the courses offered is distinct in its embrace of the entire academic tradition of the Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jama’a with respect for all scholars of Tafsir, Hadith, Fiqh, and Usul al-fiqh. Moreover, our courses highlight the importance of spiritual purification (tazkiya) and inner reform (islah).

[2:165] But those who believe are stronger in their love for Allah. Allah Almighty has given every human being an emotional aspect and everything that we have; our spiritual self, our intellectual self, our emotional self, has to be used to draw us closer to Allah Almighty. Last week I talked about this mujahida of striving; making […]
Retaining the Blessings of Sohbah
He has succeeded who purifies it, and he has failed who instils it (with corruption) [Surah Al-Shams 91:9-10] Tazkiya means to purify oneself. Allah Almighty sent the Quran and the Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him), so that we may become pure enough to get access to the Paradise, to become […]
The Harm Principle
“Shaytan used rationality to refuse prostrating to Adam عليه السلام. His argument was: He is created from the elements of earth, I was created from the elements of fire. Therefore, I am better than him, therefore, it was incorrect to ask me to do sajdah. Therefore my refusal to do sajdah was not a sin. […] Read More
Being an Ameen
إِنَّا عَرَضْنَا الْأَمَانَةَ عَلَى السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالْجِبَالِ فَأَبَيْنَ أَنْ يَحْمِلْنَهَا وَأَشْفَقْنَ مِنْهَا وَحَمَلَهَا الْإِنْسَانُ إِنَّهُ كَانَ ظَلُومًا جَهُول ً[33:72]
Indeed we offered the trust to the heavens and the earth and mountains , and they declined to bear it and feared it; but man undertook to bear it. Indeed, he was unjust and ignorant.

When I first attended Ihsan institutes workshop , I had this amazing feeling that I too want to be nearer to My Lord, the Most Compassionate. I kept on attending the workshops and tried to implement the teachings of Islam in my life. The teachers of Ihsan Institute are very helpful , they know how to convey Islamic teachings and the best quality about them is that they give us practical solutions to improve our day to day routine and the means to avoid sins, some of which I didn’t even know were sins! Eventually I joined the ILC program to increase my taqwa and knowledge.

Ihsan Institute was something that just happened on its own. I had no idea that I would be attached to such an institute which is an epitome of classical Islamic learning. I’ve spent nearly five years at Ihsan Institute and I can’t think of a single moment when it wasn’t simply great. I would encourage all prospective students to benefit from this great blessing from Allah swt by enrolling for one of the many great programs being offered.
